New Media Film Festival Invites Entries for Their 9th Annual Festival

Calling for Submissions in Over 20 Categories where a Grand Prize Award Awaits the Best


Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/01/2017 -- The New Media Film Festival announced their 9th Annual Festival in June earlier this year. The festival is conducted every year to honor stories that are worth telling – stories that will make the viewers connect with them emotionally. The festival brings together the best in new and inventive media with focus on innovation, imagination and inspiration. The motivation behind this festival is pretty obvious. The festival continues to exhibit the true potential of the new generation movie makers and emphasizes on the scope for improvising the concept of storytelling. The aim of the festival is to discover and nurture the creativity of content creators – both novices and specialists.

The festival calls for entries in over 20 categories. The latest in the categories are Drone and Virtual Reality. No wonder that the Huffington Post said that NMFF "Makes the Cutting Edge Accessible". "The New Media Film Festival seemed like an outlier when it started in 2010, with their strange categories, web series, 3D storytelling, digital comics, now all of a sudden these phrases are the new normal. The NMFF is always looking to the future, challenging creators, the market and the audience to discover new storytelling. There are not many festivals pushing the limits – go NMFF!" says Oscar Winner Nick Reed.

New Media is considered to be the birthplace that cultivates and inculcates new cinematic talent. The festival is famously termed "The Sundance for the Facebook crowd" and is appreciated by the industry for its constant efforts in finding and exploring new talent in filmmaking. Creative film makers can now submit their work and aim for the grand prize worth $45000. The judges at NMFF this year are representatives from the Television Academy, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, Marvel, HBO, etc. The winners and nominees from the Emmys and Oscars will also contribute during the judging process.
